37 Years since 1986

The first restaurant specialized in sushi opened 37 years ago in Bellevue. It was groundbreaking. It was new. It was also welcomed with open arms.

Today, the same premise of fresh fish rooted in Japanese technique, results in delicious, premium sushi. Over the years, we’ve expanded from sushi to include what we call “WA,” which is Japanese culture translated through food. While we offer the best fish from local and Japanese fish markets, we also offer a wide array of other Japanese foods, including Sukiyaki, Sashimi and Tempura.
